I'm sure all of you know that this is the 1st show without Mickey Hart for a few years. Yes you can D/L the show from GDLive or Archive.org or you have already had it for years. BUT! This is a new perspective. I recently borrowed 1st Gen Reels of an AUDIENCE recording of this show! It is amazing to hear the audience and bands interaction. This is NOT an A+ recording but I'm an engineer and remastered to the best of my abilities. There are some cuts and even a little bleed from whatever was recorded over when the dub was made. My friend Don was there and got the dubs. The masters cannot be tracked down but these were 1st gens! I'm 99% sure this recording never really got out there. It was a 1st gen .5" reel. I already forgot if it was 7.5ips or 15ips. The tape was recycled too, meaning it was taped over to record this show. My friend knew the taper but can't get anymore details. The reel sat for years before we did this transfer. There was more on the reels that the community was happy to hear about too. It was a mono recording and I remastered it. I'm happy to have been able to restore this gem for the masses to hear. I've gotten so much from you all it is great to give some back!!
I had vined this in summer of 2002 but this might be the first data distrobution.
Here's to a full decade of missing Jerry Garcia! I hope you enjoy the early audience recording! and remember if you must clap, keep the tempo! ;)

I was fiddling around with my Pandora thumbs to improve their customized algorithm for me, and up popped "Good Lovin'" from the album 3 for the vault. I was blown away, overjoyed, delighted, you name it. So I looked for the show in the archives, and sure enough 3 of the 4 can't be heard due to commercial considerations. But this one is there, and what a diamond in the not so rough...
My love affair with all things PigPen intensifies with the onset of spring. If you feel this way too, just stop what you are doing, turn on the show, and get back to your business.
A very basic tech tip: if you got cheap laptop speakers like me, set them at about 85% volume and listen from across the room.
As for the audience applause cadence issue?
